Sony Software Updates

The software that you need to constantly update in your Sony® laptop

The quick growth of the Internet has made software updates both easy and necessary. The increasing frequency of needing to connect to the Internet has also increased our vulnerability to security threats that can use that medium to enter our laptops. But the Internet also allows us to download patches and updates that make it more difficult for malicious people and software to do so. The only fault would be to forget or totally forego updating.

Here’s a list of the types of software that you need to update:

  • Operating system

  • Drivers

  • Antivirus

  • Firewall

Operating system

On your Sony® laptop, or for any other for that matter, the operating system is the most important to keep updated as it may have security flaws that other people can exploit. Keeping it constantly updated means that you cover these flaws as fast as possible, thereby limiting the risks that you are exposed to. This is rather easy to do as Windows® has an auto update feature that can take care of this.


Drivers facilitate the correct and efficient workings of your hardware, so even though your laptop exhibits no problems, keeping them updated may improve the performance of your laptop. Updating drivers is not automatically done so you need to manually check the Sony® website or have a tech expert do the checking and installation for you.

Antivirus software is very important in safeguarding your Sony® laptop against viruses and other malware that may damage your files and cause your operating system to be non-functional. Updating it with patches and definitions is also very important and most antivirus software send updates as often as daily.

Firewalls do not really need to be updated very often. But if it needs to be updated, it should be done very quickly as you would be exposed to online threats without your knowledge. You should let our tech experts handle the monitoring of your software so that you can be informed and helped whenever an update is necessary.
